Best Oceanfront Deal on Maui!

Bedrooms 1
Space 600 sq ft
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

1 Bed, 1 Bath, Oceanfront (Sleeps 2)

Here’s why this is the best deal on Maui: My unit is on the first floor. This means you walk out the door—and you’re on a lawn that slopes gently down to the ocean—some 100 feet away. Further, I’m on the far end of the complex, so you’re almost always alone if you want to spend time in the sun: The pool, Jacuzzi, and BBQ pits are on the other end of the complex.

Think of it! You come to Maui for peace & renewal, on the one hand, and easy access to every activity, on the other hand. That’s exactly what you’ll get in my condo.

At a really reasonable price.

The other listings explain what Maalaea has to offer. It’s a central location, yet quiet and restful. The perfect place for a single or couple.

Here are the nuts and bolts: fully equipped kitchen and bath; A/C; clean, comfortable furnishings; washer/dryer; dishwasher; WiFi; big-screen TV; stuff you need for the beach (beach chairs, cooler, beach towels, boogie board); plenty of parking.

Easy 20-minute drive to the airport.

P.S. For reservations for fewer than 5 days, I ask renters to split the fixed costs with me (i.e., cleaning, maintenance, and insurance). It amounts to just over $140, so I add $70 to rentals of 3 or 4 days. Thanks for understanding!

P.P.S. My Owner Transient Accommodations ID # is W01737252-01

About David Libhart

I teach for the University of Phoenix.

David Libhart purchased this condo in 2002

Why David Libhart chose Wailuku

I've lived in 4 places on Maui and this location is the best combination of central location, proximity to the ocean, and isolation.

What makes this condo unique

I love that I can step outside my living room, plop down on a lounge chair, and read & relax--and get plenty of sun. And I'm usually alone.

In the mornings, I jog along Maalaea Beach.

It's just a little piece of paradise.

The Best

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is well-kept. The arrangement is about perfect. We parked almost right outside the front door and walked out the back onto the beautiful yard and the beach. One evening a 4 foot long sea turtle came up and lay on "our" beach for a few hours. In some of the other buildings the apartments look out on each-other. The view from this one is like a picture postcard. We prefer the sound of the ocean to the sounds of the pool. This apartment is located well for anyone with that preference. Thanks for a great week.

Best condo on the whole island!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at a few other locations on Maui but David's condo is the best so far. We will be back for sure. The easy access to the beach and other locations make it extra special. The photos don't do it justice. It was perfect in every way. Every morning we simply walked out the sliding door onto the grass area and watched the sun rise. The kitchen is fully equipped including a blender for my breakfast smoothies. Walking the neighborhood is very pleasant too and you can walk along the beach all the way to Sugar Beach. There are no busy streets and the aquarium, shops, public bus and small boat harbor are an easy walk away.

Fantastic place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here in my first ever trip to Maui and Hawaii. Located in a small town centrally located and close to the airport. Quiet, and has a nice beach right out the back door. Even saw some turtles laying in the beach.

The condo was well kept, clean, and had everything you could want. I plan on coming back to Maui again and will definitely stay here again.

Lazy Maui Vacation

  • 4 of 5

David’s condo is better than it looks in the pictures . The view is gorgeous and the sound of the waves very soothing. The condo is well stocked with the basics, and the air conditioning helpful during those few hours when the sun comes right up over the volcano. The pool and barbecue area is well maintained also. We had some maintenance issues to start but David responded immediately to my emails and took care of them all. Having a washer and dryer in the unit was a bonus. My only criticism was that the bed was too hard for me—a new pillow top would sure help! But I would recommend this little gem to anyone wanting a centrally located affordable place to stay. And a great snorkel cruise—The Pride of Maui—is within easy walking distance. You can’t loose! Oh, and the beach right behind the condo seems to be a favorite with the green turtles—they came right up to shore every afternoon!

Great Location

  • 4 of 5

Best location on the island. Close to everywhere, yet out of the crowds and quiet.  Walk out the door into the ocean, couldn't have a better view.  Amazed by the numbet of turtles.  Very well stocked and great communication by owner.

Waimea condo

  • 5 of 5

Lovely, quiet getaway. Perfectly placed between Kaanapali and Waialea, and close to the airport. Loved the public beach park at the end of the street that was always quiet and just a short walk away. The nearby little town of Paia and its world class grocery, Mana Foods, is worth a trip to stock up the full size fridge in the condo kitchen. Would love to see a new king size bed to replace the older queen; otherwise, a perfect retreat.
